I Don’t “Prefer” White People: On Race Relations, Eugenics, and Natural Selection

Believe it or not, I have actually gotten guff from a few individuals about my marriage being interracial, my friendships or company being non-Asian, and my choices of food and other pastimes not being Filipino. These individuals may think I am betraying my own race by not exclusively hanging with people who look like me, when in fact, they themselves are being racist with this kind of accusation.

She’s Making Jewelry Now

I can’t believe it’s been almost two months since my last “real” update! First of all, I just graduated from being a certified hatha yoga instructor! Not that certification actually means anything, especially if you are aware of even a shred of what yoga really entails. It’s like saying I’m a certified wife or a certified Christian. It’s simply not possible.

One of the things that’s also been keeping me away from the interwebs is the farmer’s market I’m going to be involved in starting next Tuesday! It’s in Hamilton every Tuesday for those of you who live in Baltimore and want to check it out. I will be at a table sitting next to some yummy homemade honey-sweetened chocolates. I’ve been making my own jewelry lately, which is rather interesting because I hardly ever wear jewelry.

Covenant Gear: Not Just Another Christian T-Shirt Company

When I stumbled upon Covenant Gear, I quickly realized that this wasn’t just another Christian t-shirt company to add on to the pile of the many faith-based graphic tee companies out there. First off, “Jesus Freak,” “True Love Waits,” “Modest is Hottest” weren’t on any of their t-shirts. There’s nothing wrong about these slogans in themselves of course, but frankly, they are expected to be everywhere. No, there was something different about them.

On Being Genuine

These photos were actually taken before the New Year, but I never got to publish them on my blog. I still had a bit of tan on my skin! I feel like I’ve changed so much the past few months. My highlights definitely have grown out. It’s really odd how much women’s appearances change in such a short period of time, because of all the new techniques they learn about grooming or just because of a change in taste. Perhaps one of the most effective catalysts of all is a change in priorities.

Women Problems & Solutions

women-problems-solutions

Today, I decided that I was going to come up with a list of rants. Women-only rants. I figured I’d spare my husband the agony of hearing about problems he’s got no business dealing with and decided to write them on the blog. The question was, which blog? I run three different ones (health/fitness/conspiracies, spirituality, and this fashion blog). The fashion blog, having a majority of women readers, seemed to be the most appropriate.

Here are some common lady problems, their proposed solutions, and their actual solutions:
